June is National Rose Month. For centuries, roses have inspired love and brought beauty to those who have received them. In fact, the rose's rich heritage dates back thousands of years. For the past 30 years and counting, June has been the National Rose Month in the United States. A little trivia about roses… Since 1986 the rose has been the official National Floral Emblem of the United States. George Washington was the first rose breeder in the US. Roses are native plants in the US. And why white roses are so special is no mystery -- it's a myth. Perhaps it started with the Romans, who believed white roses grew where the tears of Venus fell as she mourned the loss of her beloved Adonis.
